Arise, Shine!

Join us as we wait, reflect, anticipate and prepare during the season of Advent.

From December 1 – December 31, a new devotional will be posted each day here on the website. As you read through these Advent meditations, we pray that the Holy Spirit would shine His light in your hearts and bring focus to all your Christmas celebrations: “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord” (Luke 2:11, ESV).
